Devon Wylie and Ryan Broyles

Like both guys. Wylie has some quick feet, could be solid number three in the slot and gives great value as a return specialist.
Broyles is a football player. Guys will be faster, bigger, stronger, but this kid understands the game. His health will be huge, probably a PUP player in his first year, but a team with a 5th rounder may want to take a serious look.
I'll say that Broyles ends up the better receiver, but Wylie will add a nice special teams value to a club. He has NE Patriots written all over him. Wylie has a bigger ceiling due to being a more explosive player.
As for the Niners, either guy would be a great option as a mid-rounder. Just depends on what the team needs after free agency, who is on the roster, etc.
